Gbubemi is honest and no nonsense. If you come ready to participate in your therapy, you will reap the benefits right away. Gbubemi has an organized way of sorting through a jumble of thoughts and fears and complaints to get at what your next best move might be and how you can make it.

Ms. G and I have only met a few times, however I feel my life changing. There were things I was unable to identify and she has assisted me in naming them. I feel my emotional strength growing. I am grateful for her.

Gbubemi is so easy to talk with. She is very professional with a relatable demeanor that makes you feel comfortable. I love that she is patient and seems to help me process my own thoughts rather than judging or giving me her own solutions to my concerns .

I am very happy with the way Gbubemi leads our sessions. She is very understanding of what I need to work on to improve to stop struggling. She also gives me tools to be able to put things in practice and helps me understand why certain situations happen to me. Every session has been extremely helpful.

Simply, I feel grateful for her approach. I leave each session feeling better. And when you are going through your worst, that is a super comforting feeling.

Written by S.U. on Jun 02, 2020 after counseling with Gbubemi for 3 weeks on issues concerning career difficulties, and coaching

Gbubemi, pronounced "Boo Beb Bee" is great. I was skeptical of online counseling, but our video connection and her seeing me, giving me non-verbal cues of listening, and then our dialogue of questions and answers were extremely calming and helpful. Gbubemi has given me insight about my issues and helped me think differently. And I appreciate the kindness she has extended. Thank you!

Great counselor! She was very understanding and gave good advice. If your looking for a break through, go to her. I highly recommend.

I’ve had a few sessions with Gbubemi and she’s very qualified, attentive, and cares. She not only listens, but she also challenges you to change some of your thought processes and to understand why your current perspective isn’t the only one to consider. She’s been very helpful in helping me unpack somethings. I look forward to working with her more.

Gbubemi Uwaifo is called, gifted, and anointed to counsel. I was very reticent to open up about all of my issues; however, from the very first interaction, I found G to be so very unassuming. She really allows you to speak with absolutely no judgment. Moreover, her extensive knowledge and expertise do not ever override her sense of compassion for the human plight. I feel extremely blessed to have G as my counselor.

Written by B.O. on Feb 19, 2020 after counseling with Gbubemi for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, anger management, and career difficulties

Gbubemi is a wonderful and authentic counsellor. She worked with me for 4 weeks to tackle all my personal issues one by one each week using goal setting, education, worksheets, and CBT. I loved her real down to earth nature. I couldn't even tell she was using CBT during our sessions, that's how natural it felt. I've been to other therapists in the past and it felt very clinical and rigid. I am forever grateful for her guidance and advice. It's taken years off my burdened heart. Thank you Gbubemi! If you're willing to do the work, you can make a change to feel empowered again, and take back the control in your life to make positive changes.

Gbubemi understood what I am going through and identified the areas that I need to work on to be able to achieve what I like to. The write up and worksheets are very useful to help me introspect and be able to understand it better and hoping over period of time be able to make it as a way of how I think, react etc.

Gbubemi Uwaifo has been such a wonderful help on my journey to mental wellness. In her, I have found a counselor that listens, understands, empathizes but still holds me accountable and is honest with me. She’s provided me with tactics that have helped me deal with my anxiety and stress levels. I look forward to my sessions with her because I know that I will feel an improvement with my anxiety, right after. I’m really grateful to her and for her help.
